    Naked Cowboy Sues M&Ms

    http://www.reuters.com/article/domes...35812420080213

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - New York City street performer "The Naked Cowboy" is suing Mars Inc. for $6 million over the use of his trademark look -- white underwear, cowboy boots and a hat -- by a blue M&M candy on a Times Square billboard.

    For nearly a decade, Robert Burck has been a fixture in Times Square, where he strums a guitar on a street corner while dressed in his skimpy signature costume.

    I have WITNESSES to say that in 1972, I wore that outfit on my tricycle in Tallahassee, Florida and it was MY trademark outfit. So, he stole MY idea. I should sue.
